Invisible progress

This week was productive, but you probably wouldn't notice. This week, I:
  • Paid nearly-due bills(including accidentally paying the gas bill twice).
  • Applied for several rebates and mailed them in.
  • Removed existing curtain rod brackets and replaced them again, this time with drywall anchors.
  • Touched up the paint in the living room.
  • Instituted the Quicken program for keeping track of our finances. (In an unprecedented turn of events, I called my technologically challenged mother for tips on how to use the software)
  • Transitioned the kids clothes from an ineffective dresser system to a closet hanger system.
  • Instituted a bin system for the toy cabinet--one bin at a time.
  • Installed cabinet locks in the kitchen, something only the children will notice.
  • Pulled ten square feet worth of weeds in the backyard--it only represents 5% of the weeds that remain undisturbed.
  • Identified nine sprinkler zones in the backyard and programmed them to water automatically.
  • Started taking care of my skin with Mary Kay miracle set.
See? What'd I tell ya.

Don't pull weeds in the lawn -- just spray them with weed b gone (not round up which will kill the lawn). And fertilize with weedkilling fertilizer. If you pull them they will grow back in about ten days and you'll have to pull them again.

Mary Kay skin products are truly amazing, aren't they? Pricey, but so worth it!

Um, after you are done wedding your yard, you can come finish mine. So. Many. Weeds.
